Only 5 pounds to see Michael Palin? They'd get five to ten times that in the US!

And people like me would pay gladly. ;-)

I think Missy and I paid around $80 to see him last year but that did include a lunch and drinks. And a free newspaper LOL!!!

$80 EACH? OMG! I saw him for free! Lecture, slide presentation and book signing in D.C., with Basil Pao. It lasted about 3 hours . No food, though.

My local bookstore has gotten some big names: Alan Alda, Gene Wilder, Barbara Walters. I should ask if they could get Michael. Has he already done his US book tour? He may have--New England always gets the short end of the stick with Python events. Life of Brian came to two or three cities only in all 6 states. I missed it because I couldn't believe it wouldn't come my way.

We were lucky enought to have Jackie Collins *cough* do a signing a few years ago in a department store. I have never seen such a smooth face attached to such a wrinkly neck!!!

thanks for the info Terry ! seems that I'll be missing the event this time. I will seriously consider, but it doesn't seem like I'm going. Though I want to visit Sheffield very much.

I'm going to be in the Sheffield area on Sunday - P-e-n-i-stone (old palinites will know why I spelt it out - it gets censored otherwise!), visiting our good friends.

Wonder if I can wangle another visit on 19th June? ;)
